Hangar 30, Magnuson Park
For the second year in a row, the Pocock Foundation will stage NW Ergomania! at the Hangar 30 in Magnuson Park in North Seattle. Click here to learn more or register at Regatta Central here. The NW Indoor Rowing Championships provide the entire Pacific Northwest region with the opportunity to race in over 20 categories including adaptive events, 500 meter dash sprints, the “Hour of power”, and team events. All official 2k events as this regatta serve as qualifying races for the CRASH-B World Indoor Rowing Championships held in Boston, MA on Sunday, February 28, 2016.
Athletes as young as 11 years old up to 111 years old are welcome to come and try their best on an entirely new fleet of Concept2 Model D ergs. Live race simulations on a jumbo screen provide spectators with a live visual update of where competitors stand in their race.
Alongside racing this year, the Pocock Foundation will offer education workshops to youth, junior and masters athletes, coaches, parents, and sports administrators. The workshops are free with registration on Regatta Central. Simply select the workshops you would like to attend.
Food and merchandise vendors will be at the event this year so you won’t have to travel far for sustenance and entertainment breaks.
